Administration of Sponsored Projects (Monitoring Davis-Bacon Procedure)

The procedure for identifying and monitoring Davis-Bacon and Connecticut Department of Labor prevailing wages and provisions related to grant funded construction projects is as follows:

When a project request coded to grant funds (Ledger 5 or 6) is received in Facilities Management, that office will notify both Campus Planning and Purchasing.

Purchasing will review both the state and federal wage rates related to Davis-Bacon to ensure that the proper rates are published in the ensuing bid documents. Any variation in rates (state to federal) would be addressed to the Standard Wage Division of the Connecticut Department of Labor.

Once the contract is awarded, Campus Planning will contact the contractor to coordinate the review of wages paid and the installation of appropriate signage, at the job site, regarding Davis-Bacon.

Campus Planning will review all contractor wage schedules and payrolls and maintain those records.
